Construction Updates

At the Airport

The village recently completed the installation of an Automated Weather Observation Station (AWOS) at the  Schaumburg Regional Airport (SRA). The AWOS unit provides pilots flying in and out of Schaumburg Regional Airport with accurate and up-to-date weather information which is essential to safe operation of the airfield. Weather information reported by the AWOS unit includes wind speed and direction, temperature, visibility, and precipitation. Prior to the installation of the unit, pilots had to rely on weather information from other airports in the region. Design, construction, and installation of the AWOS unit was paid for using federal, state and local funds.
